If water is being dispensed from both sides of the detergent tray, dismantle washing machine and remove top plate of the detergent tray and clean thoroughly. Water overflows from both sides during the rinse cycle to add softener to the rinse. On our washing machine it was blocked. During the service it was changed but can be washed out to solve problem.

Had the same problem with our Siemens XLm1600. The problem is that you are using washing LIQUID.

Change to a powder (particularly a biological one) and you'll be ok...

SOURCE: spin cycle will not work

If the spin cycle is not working, it could be several things. How is it not working? If it won't do anything, i.e. doesn't turn, then I would suspect the transmission since the spin cycle is the high side of the transmission. If it spins but does not take the water out of the unit, then I would suspect, either the pump or the timer.

Good luck and have a great day!

Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the bottom of the unit, after this test the lid switch assembly, you jump it to test it. If the lid switch is also fine then the control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Siemens xlm 1400 will not rinse clothes, it makes noise but the drum will not rotate eventhough it will turn by hand.


your motors drive brushes need replaced

so look to use the model number in EBAY

http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xxlm+1400+brushes.TRS0&_nkw=xlm+1400+brushes&_sacat=0

i used the search string
'xlm 1400 brushes'
and they are quite easy to replace..

it may do a whole wash cycle and count down etc just wont spin or move the drum with heavy water laden clothes

goes eeeeeeeheheeheh but no drum rotate

so
you can drain the machine only
lay the machine down with the soap drawer away from the ground
then it wont leak
two screws and one power clip removes the brushes
from the main motor {the one with the belt that drives the drum}
their are two brushes one each side
so 4 screws
and replace both ..
so...

good times

let us know the size of the brushes left

they should be like new 2.5" - 3" long
if they are less then 1.5" replace them

this is the issue

the main advice is not to use it just now
till you check the motor brushes

as this type of fault can further damage the motor

so .. dont use it till you check / replace the brushes as the intermittent contacting will damage the motors stator {the bit the brushes make contact with}

The spin on the washing machine is not working.It turns but very slowly Machine is A Siemens WM16S38368 2 years old


it may be your agitator
1
Unplug the washing machine, and turn off the water supply to the machine. If necessary, remove the water hoses from the back of the washing machine because they may be in the way of the access panel.
2
Check that the agitator is seated correctly by opening the lid of the washing machine. If it's loose, pop off the top of the agitator--if there is one--and tighten the bolt that holds the agitator in place. Or, in some models, simply pull straight up and then reseat the agitator.
3
Remove the access panel located in the back of the washing machine by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. This allows access to the drive motor.
4
Press on the drive belt that works the agitator. If the belt moves more than 3/4 inch, tighten the belt to fix the spinner problem. If the belt is worn or cracked, replace the belt.
5
Replace the drive motor, if tightening or replacing the drive belt doesn't fix the agitator. Purchase a new drive motor at a wholesale retailer. Disconnect wiring, remove screws holding motor in place and insert new motor. Screw into place, and connect wiring.
6
Check for any black substance leaking under the washing machine. This might indicate a clutch problem, if the washing machine spinner is not working. Contact a professional repairman to replace the clutch.

Dear customer,
                     When the spin cycle doesnt occur the most recommended steps are 
  1. Test the lid switch
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the centrifugal switch
  4. Test the water level switch
  5. Inspect the motor coupler
  6. Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  7. Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  8. Test the motor

Access motor


Your dryer and motor can accessed a couple different ways depending on the make and model:

1. Can be the Top (remove 2 screws near filter-pull) can slide a putty knife and screw driver and pop the top off.

2. Also, the Door must be taken off to access the motor (Screws on inside of door)

3. Bottom - panel comes off by sliding a putty knife or screw driver and dis-engaging.

After intially opening the dryer cabinet; you will most likely need to remove the front door by removing 2 screws located at the inside top corners (1/4'). ** Be sure to turn off power to unit before opening and servicing.

Whats the problem? Humming noise? Not tumbling/turning? How old? What make?
